LGBT Caucus – Honolulu Pride Unit #30, Meet & Greet, Voting & November Presentation

As we prepare for the Honolulu Pride Parade we remember why we have Pride & that is thanks to the brave rioters outside Stonewall who said ENOUGH! They fought back against the inhumanity shown to them by the raids on the gay bars! They said ENOUGH to being treated as second class citizens! In doing so they began the modern fight for justice and equality for the LGBTQIA community that we continue today!
